School Description

This school makes provision for pupils with profound and multiple learning difficulties, severe learning difficulties, autism spectrum disorder and visual impairment. A significant number of pupils have additional complex medical needs. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs. A conductive education program (movement program) is delivered by two conductor tutors trained at the PETO Institute in Hungary. Fairfields School is a National Teaching and Training School. As such it provides training and support for neighbouring schools within the local authority of Northamptonshire. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives pupil premium funding is above the national average. This is additional government funding for those known to be eligible for free school meals, from service families or who are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is above the national average, as is the proportion from families who speak English as an additional language. Ten pupils receive part of their weekly education in mainstream primary schools alongside their peers and a small number follow a design and technology course in a neighbouring school for pupils with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.
